Nintendo Switch Software Update

Gamers on Nintendo’s gaming system have been waiting a while to receive the latest firmware update for the Switch.

According to Game Spot’s report, the previous update for the Switch, version 14.1.1, was released on April 20. Its rollout is almost a month away from the March update (14.0.0).

So some would assume the next release should be in May. But the wait of more than a month is finally coming to an end.

Nintendo Switch 14.1.2 Update

The famous Japanese game company has just rolled out the latest Nintendo Switch system update which has generally improved the overall experience of the hybrid console.

According to a report from Nintendo Life, Nintendo’s official support page has provided details on the changes the new version 14.1.2 brings to Switch players.

People line up to try out new games for Nintendo Switch at the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo, also known as E3, which opens in Los Angeles, California on June 11, 2019.

Although the Japanese game company provided the full patch notes for the new update, it only gave a vague explanation of what’s new.

Nintendo said in the full 14.1.2 patch notes that it is making “general system stability improvements to improve the user experience.

That said, it looks like the update Switch gamers have been patiently waiting for is a minor one.

But on top of that, Nintendo Life mentions more explicit changes in the new Switch update, thanks to Nintendo’s data miner, OatmealDome.

It looks like the new 14.1.2 has fixed a few bugs, including what seems to have something to do with its Bluetooth connectivity.

The list of swear words has also been expanded, blocking the misspelled name of Adolf Hitler.
